A Short Preview
Silence is my greatest virtue
It's very rare that these lips ever make a move
My voice is heard through my poetry.
An awkward introvert
Living alone in my fantasy world
Hiding from the real world.
When I look at old photographs
I think of things I tried to become
And how I failed at each one of them.
In this rusty mirror
I see my true self
And I hate it.
I'm emotionally incapable
Holding back everything I want to say
Fear has my tongue.
So this is why I'm writing these words
To give me some closure
To prove that I'm still alive.
I’ve been different from everyone else since birth
A lonely star in the universe
Hollywood stars live around me
That’s what these young kids look like to me
Living so happily
Living so free.
Often I wonder what it would be like
To be another face in the crowd
My life would be happier maybe.
Sometimes I'm confident as lightning
Sweet as a sugarcane wind
Energetic as a Pokemon.
Sometimes I'm moody like rain
Angry like a hurricane
Sad like snow.
Fake friends surround me
Bringing sorrow into my heart
Maybe someday I'll find the strength
To make them go away.
True friends comfort me
Like sheets on a bed
Maybe someday I'll find the courage
To tell them how much I love them.
I'm an old fashioned romantic
The sweetest boy ever
Born with an easy heart.
My heart is rare among the stars
A strong capacity to love
Even when loving isn't easy.
I'm so quick
To fall for a girl’s smile
Doing anything to make them happy.
I have strong feelings for a wonderful girl
But I'll probably never share my feelings with her
Until the day I die.
I'm a failure
I am what I am
